Republic Scout Walker

With the rise of the New Republic and the continuous fall of Imperial
forces throughout the galaxy, the New Republic required capable and
powerful ground units (both soldiers and vehicles) to help defend and
protect member worlds without the resources to mount their own militia.

The New Republic Army, while harboring resentment against walkers,
realized the offensive and defensive capabilities that the older
Imperial walkers possessed. The New Republic contracted Kuat Drive
Yards (who was recently suffering as Imperial business was continually
dropping) to design a new version of their older AT-AT and AT-ST
walkers. KDY took the task, desperate to strengthen their chances for
future contracts with the Republic.

The AT-ST Mark II, known more commonly as the Republic Scout Walker,
was the first of the "new" walkers to come off of the assembly lines.
It's dimensions are only slightly different than that of the older AT-ST
and it featured a new weapons configuration, effectively increasing the
firepower that a single walker can bring to bear on a target. The new
weapons configuration replaced the chin-mounted twin blaster cannon with
a newer twin laser cannon. Other weapons include a concussion grenade
launcher on either side of the walker's "head" as well as a repeating
blaster mounted on top.

The inside of the walker was given more space and two seats were added
just behind the pilots' chairs. One is designated for a gunner who mans
the repeating blaster while the other can either seat a passenger
(usually a commanding officer or another soldier) or can simply be
removed to give the crew more room to move about.

AT-STs are small agile walkers used for scouting, perimeter defense, and
support for Republic troops and heavy ground vehicles. AT-STs rely on
agility rather than heavy armor for defense. Their two legged drive system
means that they are more easily unbalanced than AT-AT walkers, but they
are considerably faster, with a top speed of ninety kilometers per hour.
They are devastating in combat, especially against infantry troops and
light repulsorcraft.
